In operation since 1929, and over 26 million visitors later, Table Mountain Aerial Cableway Company today celebrates its 88th birthday and the 20th anniversary of the current cable cars.
The original steel and wood cable cars have been upgraded three times, first in 1958, again in 1974 and most recently in 1997 when the round cars with revolving floors called “rotairs” were introduced.
Some fun facts about the current cable cars:
